About

The Funding Agricultural Replacement Measures for Emission Reductions (FARMER) Program provides funding through local air districts to upgrade agricultural harvesting equipment, heavy-duty trucks, agricultural pump engines, tractors, and other equipment used in agricultural operations. Upgrading older equipment will reduce emissions thanks to newer technology standards.

Eligibility

Eligible project types included in the FARMER Program will reduce criteria pollutants, toxic air contaminants, and GHG emissions from agricultural sources. Furthermore, agricultural regions are often surrounded by disadvantaged and low‑income communities and employ many of the residents living in these communities.

Addressing the air quality and climate change impacts of vehicles and equipment used in agricultural operations is a multi‑year effort and the proposed FARMER Program Guidelines set the foundation for a long-term emission reduction program.
